PP659 Sketch from Anne Marie

Hello, stampers!  Sunday brings us another challenge from the Paper Players, and Anne Marie is our hostess this week with a wonderful sketch! Sketches are my favorite!  So here we go:

I have not used the Countryside Inn DSP for a while, and one of my customers just purchased some,  so I decided to use one of the darker pieces for my background. However, the white diecuts kind of got lost against the patterns, so I added a vellum layer to soften it a bit.  Here we go:

It really looks nicer in real life than in this photo, LOL!  The opposite side of the DSP was diecut with a Stylish Shapes die to create my background for the white Dainty Design and Timeless Arrangements dies. The sentiment, from Lasting Joy, was stamped in Night of Navy ink and diecut with a Stitched Rectangle die:

This could be used for any number of occasions, so I left the inside blank!  I am also going to enter this at the Alphabet Challenge, which is monochromatic!

Make sure you pop onl over to the Paper Players blog to see what the amazing designers created with this equally-amazing sketch!  Then be sure to share your inspiration with us as well!  Thanks for visiting today; enjoy it and be blessed!

I love this, LeAnne! I like the way you softened the DSP with the vellum. I'm getting the urge to create! Have a blessed Sunday.

Love this, LeAnne! The design is terrific and I love that you added the vellum to dull the paper a bit. Your focal point is very pretty with the white greenery! Well done! Have a great day & stay dry! :)

Beautiful, LeAnne! What a stellar idea to use the vellum to soften the pattern of the paper. The dainty die cut is the perfect focal point. Have a wonderful week!

Melanie Hungerford said...

Such a nice way to use the vellum, it really does do a great job setting off the white die cuts without losing the effect of the patterned paper. Lovely card! Thanks for sharing with us at the Alphabet Challenge.

LeAnne, using the vellum to soften a background pattern is a trick I forget about, but now I'm inspired! Your card is lovely.
Xoxo, Fran

This is gorgeous LeAnne - the paper is very busy and the vellum panel does a great job of softening it and those diecut leaves are so fresh in white. Apologies for my late comment - I am playing catch up!
